The Capitol Strikes Back!
Entertainment Buddha's Matt Heywood writes, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is one helluva sequel, and dare I say better than the first? Jennifer Lawrence and the supporting cast bring a deeper sense of emotion this time around, and each time she's on screen she'll make your heart flutter. The big twist at the end isn't hard to guess, but Catching Fire still manages to keep you on the edge of your seat for a majority of its 2.5 hour runtime. For a middle act in a trilogy, Catching Fire manages to perfectly bridge the first movie and the inevitable last film together, and has potential to convince non-book readers to buy into the hype that is Susan Collins' The Hunger Games."
